Buell Lightning Super TT XB12STT unveiled at the EICMA in Milan

The 2007 Lightning Super TT XB12STT. Looks weird but should go quite hard...

Buell have shown the new Lightning Super TT XB12STT (whew!) at the EICMA in Milan. Billed as an ‘urban supermoto,’ the streetfighter-style Lightning Super TT is powered by a 1203cc v-twin that makes 103 horsepower. There’s a 43mm USD Showa fork up front, while the rear shock is also Showa and both ends are fully adjustable. Dry weight is 181kg and while the bike is sold as a single-seater, a passenger seat can be added later.

A company press release says ‘The Lightning Super TT is just the bike to attack city streets. It is powerful in every gear, rpm and twist of the throttle. The air/oil/fan-cooled V-Twin engine features DDFI II electronic fuel injection and the Buell Interactive Exhaust is tuned for the ultimate in performance and control.’

With its belt drive, unique chassis and braking system and well-sorted suspension, the Lightning Super TT could possible worry riders of more conventional superbikes. Yours for US$10,300 – deliveries start in January 2007.
